santa’s little hackers…

Santa’s Little Hackers {http://www.santaslittlehackers.com/} is a seasonal toy drive to adapt toys. They make simple modifications to the electronics of toys and give them away.

These adaptations make the toys accessible to individuals with disabilities so they can play independently.

Santa’s Little Hackers is an annual event put on by MaxMods. MaxMods is a 501(c)3 not for profit corporation chartered to ‘make the world accessible for all’ by identifying adaptations and modifications to make the world work for individuals living with disabilities.

On December 3rd ovewr 300 volunteers came to modify 620 toys in 5 hours (breaking their current record).  It was magical to witness the love, dedication and hard work in that room.  My heart was so full as I walked around snapping portraits of these selfless ‘elves’.

Please take a moment to watch the video by Denver 7 to learn more about the project and the couple who started it and consider getting involved next year!

Thank you to each person who volunteered their time, purchased a toy or donated to this amazing organization.

Thank you to my friends  Jenny and Matt for letting me know about this event.  I can’t wait to jump in and help again next year with my family.
